The black Compact Action Aluminum Tripod from Manfrotto is a five-section camera support that can hold up to 4.4 lb. It extends from 17.3" to 61" and weighs 2.6 lb.
The grip head on the tripod has a knob that allows you to select between a photo and video function. When using the video function, the head will keep your camera level on the horizontal plane so that you can achieve smooth pans. When the knob is switched to the photo function your camera will be able to move freely on all axes for maximum control. A carrying bag is included to protect the tripod during transport.
